The 46-year-old actor has spent 700,000 pounds on the house, complete with a cave, in the Hollywood Hills, Daily Mail online reported.
"The house oozes character. Brad has had his eye on it for some time but he decided now was the right time to buy because he wanted a place to call his own," a source close to the star said.
"He needs somewhere quiet that doesn't have memories of Angie and where he can be alone and think about what he does next," the source added.
Built in 1920 and originally on sale for 1.3 million pounds, the property has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a bar area.
Pitt's mother Jane has reportedly stepped in to try to save his relationship with Jolie. She plans to meet the 34-year-old actress in Los Angeles next week.
Pitt and Jolie, are already believed to have enlisted lawyers to negotiate the division of their 205 million pounds fortune and custody of their children.
But a family source said, "Brad is desperately trying to cling on to the wreckage of the relationship as he is still very much in love with Angelina and believes they can make it work."
The couple have six children, adopted kids Maddox, eight, Pax, six, Zahara, five; and their natural children Shiloh, three, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 17 months.
